  1. Heard Wellington’s self appointed ruling class are suffering trauma under the new coalition. The lefty deep state are in shock, giving the counselling hotlines daily pleas for help and all the safe spaces are full of gibbering crying bureaucrats. When they do go to work, they leak draft policies and are betraying their new bosses to the media badly. Sounds like the coalition need to cut the public service back hard and regain control of our country.

    • Oh dear how sad, oh well never mind I am sure once they get the sack they will find new employment at the local refuse centre or somewhere equally as good.
      Still raining here in Hamilton, good strong rain isn’t it wonderful///// Three days of rain should fix the drought do you think and sort out global boiling perhaps once and for all? Could even sort out Wellingtons water woes perhaps?
      Am I ever going to get my windows painted does anyone think?????
      Anyhow, have a brilliant day everyone and be safe.

    Although American in origin, the ‘flower’ in the pic would seem to have a certain relevance to NZ, although as a ‘plant’ (Weed?) that locally flourishes and flowers all year-round, instead of merely appearing in spring…

    We are not alone!

  3. Well colour me a very dark shade of greedy IWI.

    First, these IWI pricks support the sale of the financially destitute Ruapehu Skifields, then they oppose it. Then all of a sudden the IWI want to buy it themselves, then they pull out of the sale process. Then the IWI demand and get a late night apology in Turangi from Kiri Allen and the Labour Government because IWI perceive they have been slighted by no one who ever slighted them. Then the IWI want the Ruapehu Skifields given to them. Then the IWI don’t want DOC to grant concessions to the company, Pure Turoa, who purchased the Turoa Skifields, effectively stopping the purchaser from operating.

    Now the Central North Island IWI say they want to buy both Whakapapa and Turoa Skifields for the insulting sum of $1.00.

    All this posturing by IWI and the skullduggery by DOC was and will be to ensure IWI get all the assets on Mt Ruapehu for absolutely nothing and to enrich the IWI at the cost of the Taxpayer.

    If ever there was and will be a great rort on New Zealand and the new Zealand Taxpayer, this will be up there. IWI have absolutely no knowledge of running this sort of business and I would be both my left and right Nut that within a few years or maybe sooner, one IWI get their hands on the Central North Island Skifields they will be pleading with Government to dip into the Taxpayers Wallet and financially bail them out.

      • Yes V2, Turoa Skifields have been sold to a company called “Pure Turoa”. This is the company IWI do not want DOC to grant concessions too. If DOC do not grant concessions to Pure Turoa, they can not operate a business.

        • the concession thing was also the holdup on the sale/bidon the other field too. they or their financers wanted a longer concession period to guarantee theyll be able to operate for 20? years without being put at the mercy of greedy clack bunts with a chip on their shoulder.

    following the Feb. 8 release of a special counsel’s report about the president’s mishandling of classified documents.

  8. After seeing the Red Baiter post yesterday I was motivate to write to my mate Simeon.

    Simeon ,

    Congratulations on your achievements so far and in particular my grateful thanks for your reply to me from a previous email regarding the Waimate District Council and their adherence to the Interim Speed Management – unfortunately they have blindly intend to follow their stupidity in full adoption despite having their meeting on the very day you announced the abandonment of the Road to Zero Plan.
    Your reply in 1 hour 29 minutes was an incredible response and speaks volumes of your efficiency to the cause.

    I am simply passing on this video which I will assume you have no doubt seen all, or in part of Ms Rosie’s quite blatant thumbing of her nose at you and your Government.
    I would urge you to quickly get rid of her and all in the upper echelon who reflect those same views or you will still be wondering in three years time while no significant changes have been made.

    Kindest Regards

    “Well”’ said the Sheriff. “There’s only the one at the moment: The Brown Paper Kid”.

    “The Brown Paper Kid?, Ain’t never heard of him. What does he look like?”

    “He wears a brown paper hat, a brown paper coat, brown paper pants and brown paper boots. And…” added the sheriff. “He rides a brown paper horse”.

    What’s he wanted for?”

  10. Start with a cage containing five apes.

    In the cage, hang a banana on a string and put stairs under it. Before long, an ape will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the apes with cold water.

    After a while, another ape makes an attempt with the same result – all the apes are sprayed with cold water. This continues through several more attempts. Pretty soon, when an ape tries to climb the stairs, the other apes all try to prevent it.

    Now, turn off the cold water. Remove one ape from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new ape sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his horror, all of the other apes attack him.

    After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted.

    Next, remove another of the original five apes and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm.

    Again, replace a third original ape with a new one. The new one makes it to the stairs and is attacked as well. Two of the four apes that beat him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs, or why they are participating in the beating of the newest ape.

    After replacing the fourth and fifth original apes, all the apes, which have been sprayed with cold water, have been replaced.

    Nevertheless, no ape ever again approaches the stairs. Why not ? Because that’s the way they’ve always done it and that’s the way it’s always been around here.

    And that’s how the public service operates…..

    • Posted late last night, as Neil Oliver points out, that a clean out is needed.

      ….. I’ll tell you where that solution is not to be found and that’s the next general election or any other.

      Our democracy has been gelded and the Uniparty is in control instead.
      .
      As far as I’m concerned, to still be thinking a change of ruling party in that poisoned Palace of Westminster will make any difference is the root of all evil.
      Switching colours or just leaving them as they are will change nothing.

  14. Some thoughts on democracy – by Jeff Thomas
    The decline from democracy to tyranny is both a natural and inevitable one.

    That’s not a pleasant thought to have to consider, but it’s a fact, nonetheless. In every case, a democracy will deteriorate as the result of the electorate accepting the loss of freedom in trade for largesse from their government. This process may be fascism, socialism, communism, or a basket of “isms,” but tyranny is the inevitable endgame of democracy. Like the destruction of a sandcastle by the incoming tide, it requires time to transpire, but in time, the democracy, like the sandcastle, will be washed away in its entirety.

    Why should this be so? Well, as I commented some years ago,

    The concept of government is that the people grant to a small group of individuals the ability to establish and maintain controls over them. The inherent flaw in such a concept is that any government will invariably and continually expand upon its controls, resulting in the ever-diminishing freedom of those who granted them the power.

    Unfortunately, there will always be those who wish to rule, and there will always be a majority of voters who are complacent enough and naïve enough to allow their freedoms to be slowly removed. This adverb “slowly” is the key by which the removal of freedoms is achieved.

    The old adage of “boiling a frog” is that the frog will jump out of the pot if it’s filled with hot water, but if the water is lukewarm and the temperature is slowly raised, he’ll grow accustomed to the temperature change and will inadvertently allow himself to be boiled.

    Let’s have a look at Thomas Jefferson’s assessment of this technique:

    Even under the best forms of Government, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

    Mister Jefferson was a true visionary. He knew, even as he was penning the Declaration of Independence and portions of the Constitution, that his proclamations, even if they were accepted by his fellow founding fathers, would not last. He recommended repeated revolutions to counter the inevitable tendency by political leaders to continually vie for the removal of the freedoms from their constituents.

    Around the same time that Mister Jefferson made the above comment, Alexander Tytler, a Scottish economist and historian, commented on the new American experiment in democracy. He’s credited as saying,

    A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

    So, was each of the above gentlemen throwing a dart at a board, or did they each have some kind of crystal ball? Well, actually, neither. Each was a keen student of history. Each knew that the pattern, by the end of the 18th century, had already repeated itself time and time again. In fact, as early as the fourth century BC, Plato had quoted Socrates as having stated to Adeimantus,

    Tyranny naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery comes out of the most extreme form of liberty.

    Today, much of what was called the “free world” only half a century ago has deteriorated into a combination of residual capitalism, which has been largely and increasingly buried by socialism and fascism. (It should be mentioned that the oft-misinterpreted definition of “fascism” is the joint rule by corporate and state—a condition that’s now manifestly in place in much of the former “free” world.)

    Today, many people perceive fascism as a tyrannical condition that’s suddenly imposed by a dictator, but this is rarely the case. Fascism is in fact a logical step. Just as voters succumb over time to the promises of socialism, so a parallel decline occurs as fascism slowly replaces capitalism. Fascism may appear to be capitalism, but it’s the antithesis of a free market. As Vladimir Lenin rightly stated,

    Fascism is capitalism in decline.

    Comrade Lenin understood the value of fascism for political leaders. Whilst he retained a close relationship with New York and London bankers, and a healthy capitalist market was tapped into for Soviet-era imports, he was aware that his power base depended largely on denying capitalism to his minions.

    So, from the above quotations, we may see that there’s been a fairly erudite group of folks out there who have commented on this topic over the last 2,500 years. They agree that democracies, like sandcastles, never last. They generally begin promisingly, but, given enough time, any government will erode democracy as quickly as the political leaders can get away with it, and the progression always ends in tyranny.

    We’re presently at a major historical juncture—a time in which much of the former free world is in the final stages of decay and approaching the tyranny stage.

    At this point, the process tends to speed up. We can observe this as we see an increase in the laws being passed to control the population—increased taxation, increased regulation, and increased promises of largesse from the government that they don’t have the funding to deliver.

    When any government reaches this stage, it knows only too well that it will not deliver and that, when the lie is exposed, the populace will be hopping mad. Therefore, just before the endgame, any government can be expected to ramp up its police state. The demonstrations by governments that they’re doing so are now seen regularly—raids by SWAT teams in situations where just a small number of authorities could handle the situation just as well. Displays of armed forces in the street, including armoured vehicles, in instances of disruption.

    In London, Ferguson, Paris, Boston, etc., the authoritarian displays have become ever-more frequent. All that’s now necessary is a series of events (whether staged or real) to suggest domestic terrorism in several locations at roughly the same time. A state of national emergency may then be declared “for the safety of the people.”

    It’s this justification that will assure the success of tyranny. Historically, the majority of people in any county, in any era, choose the illusion of safety over freedom. As John Adams was fond of saying,

    Those who would trade freedom for safety will have neither.

    From this point on, it would be wise for anyone who lives in the EU, US, UK, etc. to watch events closely. If a rash of “domestic terrorism” appears suddenly, it could well be the harbinger that the government has reached the tipping point—when tyranny under the guise of “protecting the safety of the people” is inaugurated.

    The most essential takeaway here is that, although some may object (even violently), the majority of the people will trade their freedom for the promise of safety.

    • Democracy as originally practised in ancient Athens was direct rather than representative & as such stood a chance against those who desired to vote themselves an income. The Westminster system with its associated parties which demand loyalty to themselves over the electorate will fail.

      They & the resultant bureaucracies nurtured corruption along with the parasites that will eventually destroy it.

  15. This is taken from Julian Batchelor’s “Stop Co-Governance” blog

    ” Not only this, but the IRD has set up special tax breaks for Maori businesses. They only pay 17% tax. Everyone else pay 35% or more. This means, for example, that a Maori electrician can offer better prices than a non-Maori business because the Maori is paying less tax.”

    If this is how it works now, I’m well and truly behind the times.

  16. So no prison sentence for this Native who was complicit with her boyfriend beating her 2 year old daughter to death.

    No Siree, no time inside the Pokey. A Dud Judge, one David Johnstone, says “I consider your experience in court as a witness to have amounted to a form of punishment,” so off you go and have a little Home D.

    In the meantime, Arapera Fia aged 2, will never live a full life, she will never laugh again, she will never experience love because she is dead and her complicit Mother gets to live at home as a result.

    The Justice System in this country is fucked due to Judges like D. Johnstone.

      “Priest said home detention was the only sentence that could address Tekotia’s fragile mental state and “break the inter-generational cycle of violence”. It would allow her to continue developing a strong bond with her new daughter, who is now 14 months old, she said, arguing that she is already serving a life sentence of knowing she failed her first daughter.”

      So she was killed in 2021 but a new meal ticket was conceived say March 2022 – yes, very remorseful in her fragile mental state.

    When it comes to a typical psychopath, the suited and booted Patrick Bateman from the novel American Psycho might spring to mind, but, according to one expert, the number of women with the neuropsychiatric disorder could be far greater than previously thought.

    how much is legitimately inflation and how much is due to contractors/consultants etc knowing the last govt spent like drunken sailors and just paid up no matter what?

    • I would say the vaste majority of it is your second option SB. Apparenty there was a guy who called into Kerri Woodham on ZB earlier who said his company had a deal lined up to import “kitset” type class rooms from Aussie. The Education Department was happy with the design and the price. The guy had builders all lined up to erect them but the deal fell through in the end because it had “no Maori component” in it !!! Had to be 30% Maori involvement apparently, so given they were to imported it could not go ahead.

      • 30% maori involvement will probably equate to 2-300% cost increase!

        ive read a few things as of late involving cost blowouts with new classroom builds etc and i struggle greatly to see how a basic structure with little internal walls etc can cost so bloody much esp when the land is already there at zero cost.

        dunedin hospital is another one, it seems as if consultants and others involved in the design process are hoovering up vast sums of money before the project even starts… then a major change gets made and they get another suck at the sav.

        dont even get me started on fucking roading… gotta be the biggest price gouging/rort in the country.

  19. A decadelong secret partnership between the CIA and Ukraine has been critical for lethal operations against Russia: NYT

    The partnership began during a crisis year for Ukraine when the country’s pro-Kremlin president, Viktor Yanukovych, had just been ousted, and Russia would soon annex Crimea.

    “We made a distinction between intelligence collection operations and things that go boom,” a former senior US official told the Times.

    “Are they pulling triggers? No,” a senior US official told The Times of the CIA’s role in Ukraine. “Are they helping with targeting? Absolutely.”

Yet our kind and benevolent government blocked we the people access to this safe and effective treatment that has been around for over 40 years just doing its job. Of course the reason they continue to block our access to it is because of its known effectiveness in dealing with the spike protein, delivered via the bio-weapon. They just don’t want us healthy do they?

        • Lets put it this way, nobody talked about Myocarditis or pericarditis besides Heart Surgeons on the odd occasion. Now, everyone is talking about it. I had never discussed troponin levels ever before the vaccination came out…. Just a coincidence, nothing to see here… or maybe not. Also odd that athletes just didn’t drop dead on the pitch at regular intervals before the vaccination, at least not at the rate they are now…. Once again, just a coincidence, or maybe not… I don’t have stats, but it seems like the unvaxxed are not affected by turbo cancers, or these heart issues at the same rate as the vaccinated. However, I’ll try and get some stats to reinforce my cursory observations….

            On the Ohio State study showing vaccinated Covid patients had a HIGHER risk of death than the unvaccinated
            It’s just one hospital, just one paper. Except it’s not.

            READ IN APP

            This is the paper I planned to write about yesterday before I took my trip down Misreading Article Lane.

            I’m revisiting my embarrassment, because it’s so important.

            On Feb. 6, Ohio State University researchers published a stunning finding – stunning to anyone overwhelmed by mainstream media mRNA propaganda since 2021, anyway. Vaccinated Covid patients hospitalized with respiratory failure were more likely to die than the unjabbed. 70 percent died, compared to 37 percent.

            The gap persisted when the researchers matched patients by age and comorbidities. “Vaccination status of hospital-admitted COVID-19 patients may not be instructive in determining mortality risk,” they wrote.

            (Thanks for your supportive emails after Sunday night’s correction. Thanks for standing with me, even when I trip (I’ll avoid the Joe Biden joke). I hope you’ll subscribe.)

            Upgrade to paid

            In their report, published in Frontiers in Immunology, a peer-reviewed journal, the Ohio State researchers also reported vaccinated patients tended to have higher IgG4 antibody levels during their third week of hospitalization.

            That finding is notable, since papers last year showed that mRNA jab recipients eventually develop higher levels of IgG4 antibodies – which promote immune systems tolerance of pathogens like viruses rather than a full-on attack.

            “In our study, the observed trend for increased total IgG4 concentration in week 3 for [vaccinated] patients may explain the reduced protective [antibody] responses,” the scientists wrote.

            The Ohio State paper covered only a single hospital and 152 patients.

            But other studies have also found vaccinated Covid patients do not have a survival advantage once they are hospitalized.

            As early as November 2021, Spanish researchers published a paper in the European Respiratory Journal showing fully vaccinated patients had slightly higher death rates than a matched group of unvaccinated patients, though the trend did not reach statistical significance.

            (34.6 percent is more than 28.6 percent, right? Yay! No correction tonight)

            SOURCE

            And in January 2023 paper, Italian physicians reported that in fall 2021, vaccinated patients admitted to intermediate care units in their hospital were more than twice as likely to die as unvaccinated patients – 62 percent versus 29 percent.

            As with the Ohio State paper, the vaccinated patients had higher comorbidities than the unvaccinated. But even after the doctors accounted for that difference, they found vaccinated patients were at higher risk, though the trend did not reach statistical significance.

            “In the severe disease stage few factors, including vaccines, influence outcome,” they wrote. “Once severe SARS-CoV-2 illness develops, mortality is definitely high in both unvaccinated and vaccinated.”

            One reason the single-hospital papers show worse vaccine outcomes than bigger data sets from public health bureaucrats is that the physicians who write them typically – and correctly – identify Covid patients who received only one shot as vaccinated.

            In the agglomerated papers, those patients are categorized as unvaccinated. That statistical trick makes the vaccines look better. But it does nothing to help the patients who have received them.

            Still, in a larger study, a 2022 paper from Centers for Disease Control researchers also found that vaccinations did not lower the risk of severe disease or death in Covid-hospitalized patients – although the researchers did not break out deaths separately.

            The papers run contrary to what vaccine advocates have said for three years. During the great mRNA push in summer and fall 2021, the media and doctors insisted vaccinated people fared far better than the unjabbed even after they were hospitalized.

            In July 2021, for example, the Associated Press offered this false assurance:

            Federal health officials say even when breakthrough infections occur, they tend to be mild — the vaccines so far remain strongly protective against serious illness.

            Three months later, in October 2021, NPR gave listeners this sweet-sounding fiction:

            [Dr. Hyung] Chun says those who are vaccinated generally tend to do better once they are in the hospital, compared to those who aren’t vaccinated.

            “Even if you were hospitalized [with a breakthrough infection], the trend we’ve been observing is that you will likely be far less sick in terms of needing things like supplementary oxygen or mechanical ventilation, or even your risk of death,” says Chun, an associate professor of cardiology at the Yale School of Medicine.

            Since the start of 2022, doctors have been more cautious about promising vaccinated people will walk out of the hospital quickly even if they get Covid – probably because the truth they see is too obvious for them to deny.

            Yet the broad claim that mRNA jabs save lives even if they do not stop infection has become even more central to the vaccine sales pitch over the same period.

            The reason is obvious: the failure of fall 2021’s boosters forced even the craziest jab fanatics to admit the mRNAs would never produce durable immunity against Covid.

            Much less provide herd immunity.

            Much less control or eliminate Sars-Cov-2.

              Report 94: Pfizer Secretly Studied a Heart Damage Marker, Troponin I, in Five- to 15-Year-Olds, Following mRNA COVID Vaccination in 2021.
              By Dr. Chris Flowers, MD, MBBS, FRCR, FSBI
              FEB 23, 2024

              Originally Posted on DailyClout

              We warned that there was proof that the Pfizer BNT162b2 mRNA COVID vaccine caused heart damage in teens and young adults, as early as May of 2021.

              As more information surfaces from the court-mandated release of Pfizer clinical trial documents by the FDA, and via FOIA’d emails, the CDC’s cover-up of evidence of COVID-19 mRNA vaccine-associated myocarditis in minors, becomes increasingly serious. Myocarditis is inflammation of the myocardium, resulting in tissue degeneration or necrosis.

              For example, during the same time period that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was repeatedly advising parents to get their children vaccinated against COVID-19, Pfizer was secretly testing for markers of heart damage in vaccinated kids. They looked for Troponin I in minors. When heart damage occurs, troponin I, a protein, gets released into the bloodstream.

              While the CDC was urging parents to vaccinate their kids, Pfizer was studying how badly its mRNA COVID vaccine damaged children’s hearts.

              Pfizer ran a study called ‘Phase 2/3 Obtaining Serum Samples for Potential Troponin I Testing.’ The study, which started in September 2021, was “…carried out in 2 age groups in order to collect blood samples for potential troponin I testing. The younger age group (5 to <12 years of age) will be placebo-controlled meaning you will receive either active vaccine or placebo. The older age group (12 to <16 years of age) will be open-label meaning everyone will receive active vaccine."

              Shortly after the initial release of Pfizer documents, in April 2022 I wrote my first report, which presented compelling evidence that Pfizer and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) were both aware of the myocarditis-causing potential of the emergency use authorization (EUA) mRNA COVID vaccine. Subsequent research by the late German pathologist Dr. Arne Burkhardt confirmed that myocarditis was caused by the mRNA injection: he revealed the presence of spike protein in the myocardium of autopsied patients who had 'died suddenly,' as well as revealing scarring as a result of autoimmune effects.

              Who Knew What, and When?
              It became clear by February 2021 that a myocarditis safety signal was in the data and in scientific research ‘in press’ – meaning, scientific research which had passed peer review and been accepted for publication but that was not in print. In fact, the Israeli Ministry of Health alerted the CDC to a myocarditis safety signal on February 28, 2021.

              My previously mentioned 'Report 11: Pfizer Vaccine – FDA Fails to Mention Risk of Heart Damage in Teens' clarified that the committees reviewing the vaccine rollout had received information from the Pfizer Post-Marketing Experience 5.3.6 document, released in full in Spring 2021, and from other publicly available information that showed 35 cases of myocarditis in children within one week after receiving the second dose of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

              In April 2021, Israel began examining an unexpected incidence of myocarditis primarily linked to the second dose of the mRNA COVID vaccine.[https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/israel-examining-heart-inflammation-cases-people-who-received-pfizer-covid-shot-2021-04-25/] This finding was contrary to prevailing message at that time that COVID infection caused myocarditis. In June 2021, Israel reported a link between a second shot of the Pfizer mRNA COVID vaccine and heart problems in males under the age of 30.

              Emails between the CDC and the White House, obtained through FOIA by Ed Berkovich and reported by Amy Kelly, show that the White House and other top health agencies were aware of this information, and sought to cover it up.

              These emails reveal the panic within the White House and public health agencies, that unfolded even as the agencies directed consistent media promotion that the vaccine was "safe and effective."

              The FOIA-produced emails, despite being heavily redacted, contain revealing information. As Ms. Kelly reported, "Astonishingly, the emails reveal that the most senior leaders, up to the White House, knew about heart damage linked to mRNA vaccines yet colluded behind the scenes to conceal this side effect from the American people." (For a comprehensive description and analysis of the FOIA’d emails, please refer to Amy Kelly's article.)

              As noted above, at first the public health agencies’ messaging – and thus the general fear – was that myocarditis might result from COVID-19 infection. This message prompted public health entities and medical professionals to advocate for COVID vaccination.

              On May 23, 2021,Demetre Daskalakis, MD, COVID CDC Response Role: Senior Lead, Equity in COVID Data and Engagement and Director of CDC Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention, sent a slide deck with the filename 'Myocarditis update deck 5232021 Final’ to Henry Walke, MD, MPH, CDC Director of the Office of Readiness and Response (the FOIA’d version is almost completely redacted). This event prompted a flurry of also-mostly-redacted emails between CDC personnel and others.

              Thus, the CDC knew by then that COVID vaccine-related myocarditis occurred, yet the agency worked hard publicly to minimize the seriousness of that risk, and to conceal that possible cause and effect.

              What do the October 2023 Pfizer documents released by the FDA Reveal, Which Demonstrate U.S. Federal-Level Health Agencies' Awareness of Vaccine-Induced Myocarditis?
              The October 2023 Pfizer documents released by the FDA revealed Federal-level U.S. health agencies’ awareness of vaccine-induced myocarditis.

              Indeed, they knew this, in part, because Pfizer attempted to address these very concerns in the pediatric clinical trial documentation.

              These documents contain protocols and information 'assent' sheets for a Spring 2021 pediatric clinical trial in which Pfizer orchestrated ACTIVE FOLLOW-UP – i.e., in clinic and telephone follow-up with participants at four days, one month, and six months – to assess the degree of heart damage from the vaccine. (The 'assent' sheet reflects an effort to enable the minor to understand, to the degree they are capable of, what their participation in the decision-making process would involve.) Pfizer was specifically looking for myocarditis.

              The first document, in comic book format and dated 15 February 2021, is tailored for younger children. The second document is for older children to assent – i.e., agree to the ability they are able to as minors – participation in the trial.

              The cynicism of a corporation’s employees handing children comic books in order to secure their agreement to a test of possibly life-threatening heart damage, needs no emphasis.

              In the October 2023 Pfizer documents, a pediatric informed consent study template (ICD Version Date 10 September 2021), for "Phase 2/3 Obtaining Serum Samples for Potential Troponin I Testing (all age groups) September 13, 2021," was discussed in a Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) meeting presentation on October 26, 2021.

              While the FDA and Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) acknowledged myocarditis as an important identified risk, this is a discussion about five- to 11-year-olds, a demographic not at naturally risk for such a heart condition. In VRBPAC's October 26, 2021, presentation entitled, "FDA Review of Effectiveness and Safety of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine in Children 5 through 11 Years of Age Emergency Use Authorization Amendment," the FDA/Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) indicated monitoring for the following identified safety concerns for 5- to 11-year-olds:

              https://www.fda.gov/media/153510/download, p. 31.

              According to the prevailing narrative at that time, vaccine-related myocarditis occurred in male teens and young adults, not young children. By testing the younger age group, Pfizer had two aims:

              To show that any 'vaccine-induced' myocardial damage, as shown by raised troponin I levels, was mild and temporary – i.e., in alignment with the company's and public health's prevailing message.

              To show the vaccine was not causing myocarditis, as it was not detected in the younger population, which, again, aligned with Big Pharma and public health's talking points.

              Myocarditis is normally a very rare event among in five- to 11-year-old children and would typically be caused by a viral infective agent. The CDC was concerned about young children potentially getting COVID-induced myocarditis but did not understand that the mRNA COVID vaccines were causing the immune-mediated heart damage in the children, which would manifest after the short trial, not during it.

              Additionally, this study involved Comirnaty™, which was not publicly available in the United States. Therefore, it seems European children, not American children, participated in it. (Reference the second bullet in the screenshot below. In active surveillance, scientists actively seek out cases of disease.) The question arises: Was a study of only Comirnaty™ done to keep information away from the American public?

              https://www.fda.gov/media/153510/download, p. 31.

              Pfizer reported in the five- to 11-year-old pediatric trial that there were no cases of myocarditis. However, the company only conducted two months of follow-up, and there was a small number of vaccinated subjects (3,109). While myocarditis may present soon after vaccination, particularly after a second dose, it can take much longer than one to two months to become symptomatic to the point where the patient becomes aware there is a medical issue occurring.

              As a result of both the brevity of the study and the small sample, the absence of evidence of myocarditis in the study lacks significance.

    UKRAINE TRIES TO ASSASSINATE TUCKER CARLSON, BUT FAILS – Russian intelligence detains citizen of Podolsk (https://t.me/IntelRepublic/33016) (top video) as he was preparing to plant bomb (right pic) under car of the U.S. political commentator in parking lot (left pic) under hotel he stayed in during time in Moscow interviewing Putin (https://t.me/IntelRepublic/33805).

    The gullible man admits he attempted the act of terrorism on behalf of Ukraine’s terrorist SBU (https://t.me/IntelRepublic/26673), not even caring who the target is (00:42) and all for a lousy $4,000 (00:26).

    No surprise there as Carlson already added to Ukraine’s KILL LIST (https://t.me/IntelRepublic/33724), earlier said U.S. intelligence agencies were monitoring him – So Washington quite possibly tried to kill its own journalist in a joint intelligence operation with minion Ukraine – lovely, isn’t it?
